Up In The Air


Trailblazers, a network of young disabled people who campaign on social issues, have published their guidance report on air travel.


'Up In The Air' is the result of a survey of more than 100 disabled passengers who have given examples of incidents they have experienced on planes in recent years. In addition, Trailblazers held airline-focused discussion groups at 24 regional meetings across the UK during 2011 and 2012.


Although some disabled passengers have had good experiences, most disabled passengers believe there is much that the airline industry needs to do before it catches up with other mainstream modes of transport.


'Up In The Air' looks into all aspects of air travel such as booking flights, arriving at the airport, checking in and the flight itself, exploring common issues and making recommendations on how this can be improved.
